Isn't It Great To Be Rich

"For in him you have been enriched in every way---in all your speaking and in all your knowledge" (1 Cor. 1:5).

So, you say you're not rich? "God who is rich in mercy, made us alive in Christ....In order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus" (Eph. 2:4&7). What we are is "rich in Christ." As Christians we are enriched by Him in all ways.

Paul says in the verse that we are "enriched in every way." We are enriched in the good times and the bad, the dark times and the bright ones. In everything we experience, through every aspect of our lives, we are enriched by Him. One of the ways we are enriched is in "all our speaking." His promise is to help us speak out...Speak out for Him. We have the opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus to the world, whether in word or in deed. We can live His life in ours before others as we share His message.

The second way this verse says we are enriched is "in all our knowledge." God has given to us the Holy Spirit is reveal His truth to us. (John 15:26) What a wonderful enrichment it is! "But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Pet.3:18).

WE ARE really rich today....Rich in HIM. All of the resources of our Lord are available to us if we are willing to tap into them. In Him we have the power to speak out the truth. In Him we can have our knowledge of Himself increased. In each life experience, He has made us more rich. "For in HIM you have been enriched in EVERY WAY!"

Finally, Paul says to us in 2Cor. 8:9, "For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich."

So there you have it...We are all rich. Doesn't it feel great?

Have a great day....Make a difference...Love mark Phil. 4:11
